By September 9, 2012

Follow me on:

Ford's Theatre in Washington DC presents the premiere of "Fly," on September 21 through October 21, 2012. "Fly" showcases the friendships gained and challenges faced by four Tuskegee Airmen during training and combat during World War II. The production inventively combines live action, video footage and the inspirational "Tap Griot," a dancing storyteller who expresses the anger, fear and triumph that the officers cannot. As part of The Lincoln Legacy Project, Ford's Theatre offers facilitated discussions to interested audience members immediately following each evening performance. These 20-minute discussions give audiences an opportunity to engage in a dialogue on the themes and issues raised in the performance. Tickets are on sale now at ticketmaster.com.

Ford's Theatre is a theatre, museum and education center that highlights the legacy of Abraham Lincoln. Many of the theatrical performance have themes relating civil rights. The Lincoln Legacy Project is a multi-year effort to create dialogue in our nation's capital around the issues of tolerance, equality and acceptance. Read more about Ford's Theatre.
